I like both of them quite a bit, but I have been contemplating about letting one of the two Mesa go, to make room for new toys. Can't decide which to keep. At the moment I don't use any pedal or rack effect. But if I want to keep only one of these, and still get the tone of both, I am probably looking at some sort of effect, right? So I could try to 1) find a EQ and a compressor to go with the V12 2) find a nice distortion/overdrive to go with the M9 Which route would you suggest? Why? What are the effect(s) to try out to get reasonably close to what the other can do? Size and weight are NOT part of the consideration. Power wise, they are close enough not to make a difference either. Thanks for any advice, comment or suggestion.
